The Production Shed have been working with Stumble danceCircus to tour Cart Before Horse, their new short outdoor piece commissioned by and performed as part of the Yorkshire Festival, to coincide with Le Tour De France’s Grand Depart from Leeds on Saturday 5th July.
Cart Before Horse will be a nonsense-filled outing of a dysfunctional cart and bicycle, dragging two performers through the streets, seeming to get almost nowhere at all. Steve Ryan and trick-cyclists, Paddy Waters and Alice Allart (both pictured above) will flounder towards an unknown finishing line. There will be circus, there will be comedy, and there will be chaos.
Commissioned by the Yorkshire Festival, the piece will be performed in 7 towns between 29th June and 6th July. Click the map to see where. There will also be accompanying workshops in theatre and trick-cycling to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
